Best 2021 Tailwind CSS components collections

Tailwind CSS is definetly the CSS framework you should keep an eye on ! This utility-first framework has been created for rapidly building custom UI components. Since its launch in 2017, Tailwind CSS has gotten more and more popular. The proof of this growing success ? Tailwind CSS has been ranked #1 at the State of CSS report for the past two years (2020 and 2021). This ranking is based on satisfaction, interest, usage, and awareness in the developers community.

Tailwind’s syntax gives an incredible development speed to the developer. If Tailwind CSS is often the good choice to get the work done effectively and quickly, its learning curve can be a bit steep for novice developers.

So for those in lack of time or inspiration Tailwind CSS component libraries and collections are there to help you ! Their components are fully responsive and page templates allow you to copy and paste HTML snippets directly into your codebase to use or modify. Built by other developers and organizations, these collections allow you to get started on your project quickly by seeing the potential outcome.

Some of these collections are totally free and others offer free and premium components. Here is the list of the best 2021 Tailwind CSS component libraries that worth your attention. Enjoy !
